GameStop.uk has Grand Theft Auto V slated for a February release date.
Looks like GameZone doesn't know how to read non-U.S. dates. Actual date is September 2
DEAR GOD YESSS !!! i hope its true !! its looks already far in development so i hope its true !!!
Idiots, learn how dates are done in the UK!
Lol. They made a pretty big mistake.
at least they got the year right...at least they admit to it, unlike a certain site that deletes review....
No way it's true . So few months away , we would be getting far more than a teaser . GTA sales (even if mostly deserved) rely heavily on hype and marketing .
Theres no way in hell it'll be released that early. Earliest i'd say is may 2012 which corresponds with rockstar's recent game releases.
STUPID , STUPID SITE. In Europe its DAY/MONTH/YEAR
Idiotic journalism at it's finest.
Lol, is a uk date, they are reading it wrong. We put the day first, then the months; 02/09/2012 = 2nd of Sept 2012 NOT Feb 9th. lolol
Lol, not a chance. They'll want more than 3 months to build up hype. On top of that, they won't release one month before another one of their high profile games (Max Payne 3). They'll space them apart for maximum potential and profit.
R* is the king of gaming.
stupid people will believe and preorder gamestop wins
@ Cirran. From an American perspective, your way of telling dates are as strange. Just a matter of cultural differences.
No, our way is logical. Your way is wrong. Get over it already.
lol it really depends on how the majority of the people say the date out loud most of the time in that country. In the US, we would say today is "November 3rd" more often than "today is the 3rd of November." Thats why we write the month first I think, its just more of a direct translation of how we usually say dates out loud. Id assume that other places will often say the date first when speaking as thats how they write it, not sure tho. How would any of you European people say what day is your birthday??? Would you say, "my birthday is on April 9th" or would you say "my birthday is on the 9th of April" I just wondering because now im interested in finding if other people say the dates differently and that would make sense why we write the dates differently too.
Who are you to say that YOUR WAY is logical to a culture that's different from your own? I could say that your way of living is bizarre from our own but that's a matter of two different cultures with different perspectives. Hence what's normal to us is strange to you and vice versa. Deal with it.
If you look at it from a logical perspective, saying the 9th of February sounds like the 9th day of February. To me, saying February 9th sounds like it's the 9th time the month has occurred. To each their own, but I'm pretty sure the US is the only country that arranges their dates that way. EDIT: Oh, okay Fairy. I guess I don't think like that. Silly me. Yes, okay the game will be released the 9th time the month of February ever occurs. So, I'm already playing it. It's decent, but it's really old. Check back tomorrow when I'll have a few pictures carved out on my cave wall to give you my full thoughts on the game. I'm thinking of calling it a "review" since it's like I'm looking back at my experience and sharing it. I've also got this thing that's sort of round and rolls along... anyone got any ideas of what to call it? <trollface.jpg?>
Lies we have it the right way around ;)
February. No. September? hmmm.... Not impossible, but GTA IV was supposed to be out sooner than it was, and Rockstar knows fans will accept nothing less than perfection. The date set is probably just some default date for the store. I wanna say we'll see the game Feb/Mar 2013, but the trailer isn't that much to go off of for how far along they are. There's a lot of debate about the right way to arrange dates for some reason. Europe, we'll switch our dates around if you drive on the right side of the road. We'll even start using metric if you stop making the Baby Jesus cry with your evil ways of universal health care and high literacy rates. (I cannot stress how much I was joking in that last bit. The offer still stands on the date thing though.)
Honest mistake. what would you expect from a country that uses their own form of measurements?
Wouldn't mind a fall release but really hope they space it out from other releases as next year is a big year as well for releases. This year started slow, summer was practically a drought for gaming and now every game everyone has been anticipating to no end is coming out within days of each other....That should be avoided completely.
The rest of the world laughs at America's illogical date system
I want this game so bad, I cannot wait but I wish it came in the summer tbh....nothing good comes out then :/
